The Absent Minded Husband – I’m posting this one at the top in the hope that my wife will read it and develop a whole new sympathy for…wait, what was I talking about again?

Making Sense of Inconsitency – Tim Keller has penned an article “considering the larger issue of inconsistency regarding things mentioned in the Old Testament no longer practiced by the New Testament people of God. Most Christians don’t know what to say when confronted about this issue. Here’s a short course on the relationship of the Old Testament to the New Testament.”

The Smithsonian and the Creation Museum – This is kind of funny. “Secularists openly and frequently mock the Creation Museum. With name calling and all sorts of false accusations, they attempt (futilely) to discredit this high-quality professional facility. Well, here is something ironic! The Smithsonian (unknowingly, I’m sure) has used a photograph of one of the dinosaurs inside our Creation Museum on a major promotional brochure for its popular IMAX shows…”

—D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
